fit holiday week 3 Fit Holiday Week 3: Outrun the Tsunami Storm

THE SCENARIO: After pushing last week’s party plane out of the North Pole snow drift, you sho-nuff earned your right to a fanciful Caribbean excursion. You safely arrived at your tropical destination of the fun in the sun, ordered a large glass of spiked Kool Aid and headed to your private cabana on the beach. But whoa. It wasn’t long after slurping the Kool Aid that you noticed a storm of tsunami waves heading right towards you. This is some serious shizz. Drop that drink and make a run for it.

Here is your Fit Holiday Week #3 Mission: Outrun the tsunami storm while simultaneously burning off those spiked Kool-Aid calories. This week’s daily missions will really get your heart pumping. Don’t let those waves catch you!

  • Monday: 2 rounds of 20 mountain climbers + 20 high knee jogs
  • Tuesday: 10 reps Around the World Leg Raises (scroll down to see video demo)
  • Wednesday: 30 half jacks ~ keep arms raised overhead
  • Thursday: 20 kettlebell or dumbbell swings 
  • Friday: 15 weighted deep squats

NewsFlash Friday: Most Popular Diets of 2014, Side Kick-Through Burpees for Fat Loss, and Cat Poop in My Christmas Tree

I’m know you’re just dying to find out how Batshit Kittay managed to get poop in my Christmas tree, but let’s get on to the fitness & health part of this newsflash first. M’kay?

MOST POPULAR DIETS OF 2014

Although eating (mostly) clean and getting all fitness-sweaty on the regular is the most sustainable “diet” out there, DietsInReview.com’s 2014 list of Most Popular Diets is an interesting read. The list is curated by readers based on web traffic. The diets that made the list are “the most talked about, searched and used” diets in 2014. But be careful! Just because a diet is popular doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Do your research first.

SIDE KICK-THROUGH BURPEES FOR FAT LOSS

Awww yeah! This exercise just happens to be today’s Fit Holiday mission, so ‘git on it, my friends. Try this out and watch your fatty parts die! Die! DIE!!!

OMG! CAT POOP IN MY CHRISTMAS TREE

Batshit Kittay has ‘done lost her dang mind. She’s a long hair domestic and, apparently, requires what is officially known as a “sanitary clipping” (just Google it). Why is that? Welp, sometimes when she poops, the crap gets stuck to the long hairs on her backside — I know…gross. We try to clip her regularly to avoid this, but I guess we suck at it. We’re now leaving the clippings up to a professional groomer. Kittay has been climbing inside our tree, and the last time she did, we were unaware of her shitty situation. There were pine needles stuck to the poop on her butt. GAH! This undoubtedly means there is poop debris inside our tree. I don’t smell anything shitty but my intuition tells me it’s in there. Yes. I am disturbed over this matter.

Can you spot Kittay in the tree? kitty poop NewsFlash Friday: Most Popular Diets of 2014, Side Kick Through Burpees for Fat Loss, and Cat Poop in My Christmas Tree
